Wisconsin Man Sentenced for Sending Unauthorized Emails
St. Louis, MO – Christopher Crivolio, 47, of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, was sentenced to a four year term of probation for knowingly using, with the intent to commit harassment, the means of identification of another person. Crivolio appeared before U.S. District Court Judge John A. Ross who ordered him to pay $44,847.76 in restitution within 15 days as well as a $2,000 fine.
According to court records, in August 2018, Crivolio sent unauthorized emails claiming to be someone else, an employee of “MH.” Crivolio was previously been employed with and terminated from MH. He sent the emails to more than 10 job applicants who had applied for positions at MH. The rejection emails were offensive in nature. Crivolio signed the emails using the full name of a nurse practitioner who still worked at MH.
Crivolio pled guilty in July 2019 to one count of identity theft.
The case was investigated by the F.B.I. offices in St. Louis and Milwaukee with assistance from the Western District of Wisconsin. Assistant United States Attorney Gwen Carroll handled the case for the U.S. Attorney's Office.
